yeah when I look at all the extra plastic on the bottom but probably that's because all I've looked in the past few years are two g4's in the garage and I love how Kawa engineered plastic. The 430 pounds with the normal super hp is what I need, a 600 on steroids which was g4's attraction. SP2's head work not sure about but not needed for me, anyway. The wheels on it don't work for me. On other hand the H2 kinda interests me BUT it's so heavy that I really can't justify constantly buying tires and extra fuel for it as bottom line is heavy burns fuel and wear tires. H2 will only work if weight is down around 430 and handling/geometry adjusted to keep front on the ground.

I never use the cotter key in the axle nut, either, but when gave the '13 to the local dealer for a couple possible warranty questions, I got the bike back with a new cotter key.

mpp12 The new honda is piece of crap... the SP2 that comes with the new head, looks promising...

but when you look at races and you see mamas and papas, zx10r passing factory blades.... you know there is something wrong.

UK site in honor of the Commonwealth of OZ! cbr is about 430 pounds or so with the in line four and no nonsense.

Reason for my 2019 year is that I bought the five year warranty on my '13 which expires in sept. 2019. So now the wife is holding me back to that '19 year. should never have told her about that stupid warranty.

peterd10r I thought the tank was Titanium but have been informed Aluminium as this keeps the fuel cooler

peterd10r All I was told when sent the pictures was it is confidential and very hard to tune!other than that nothing!Ive got a feeling it's the more reasonably priced V4 for the road Honda had mentioned when their 2017 Blade hit the market!I will get the full story in time
